...been watching The Wire. I missed this the first time round and am now watching it courtesy of a colleague who couldn't believe I'd never seen it and brought in the first season on DVD the next day. I'm now up to the start of season 4 and am hooked.
...been knitting toy clothes. Last week niece #1 announced that she thought it would be a good idea if I knit some pyjamas, a skirt, and a hat for Mousey (her inseparable sidekick). So far I've made the pyjamas and a dress. Mouse clothes are even quicker to knit than baby clothes.
...been reading The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet. This is a book that I've been meaning to read for the last 14 years and I'm really enjoying it. Next up, Anna Karenina, as soon as it's available in the library again.
